      Upcoming Changes to the Fantasy Flight Games Forums   01/20/2017

      Hello Fantasy Flight Games forum community!   This week, we will be making some important changes to your Fantasy Flight Games community account and the way that you log into the Fantasy Flight Games community forums and web store.   We have been working hard to integrate with the rest of the Asmodee group, and we are happy to announce a unified way to access all the websites and apps made by Fantasy Flight Games, Days of Wonder, and Asmodee!   For most users, nothing will change: you will still log into the Fantasy Flight Games forums using your current login name and password. Only the login user interface will be new.   For a few users, your credentials might be slightly changed. For example, this could happen to users who have both a Fantasy Flight Games and Days of Wonder account, or in the case of conflicting login names across platforms. When these situations occur, special e-mails will be sent to those users with an easy explanation about those changes and what steps to take next. For any of you receiving those e-mails, please make sure to follow the instructions carefully.   Remember, official communications from Fantasy Flight Games or Asmodee.Net will never ask for your password.   What are the benefits for you as a player? Using a unified account to access all of our web services and apps makes your life simpler. Over time, you will see new features emerging, such as keeping all of your friends under a single account, finding friends easily in apps with online play, or developing your personal profile by adding to your board games collection. These are just some of the features that you will see during the next year, once this important technical step is complete.   Important note: The migration of the forums to our new system will take place on Tuesday, January 24th. The forums will be offline for about two hours during that time. Once the migration is complete, older forum posts may look strange for up to 24 hours as we rebuild them in our new system.   We can’t wait to connect our board game communities and build bridges between universes, game systems, players, events, groups, game clubs, and more! This is only the first step in bringing people and games closer together. For more information, read our FAQ at https://asmodee.helpshift.com/a/asmodee-net/.   Best regards,   The Fantasy Flight Games Team

Hellbringers Relic

3 posts in this topic

Long time lurking, but first post:

In 'Enemies of the Imperium' it mentions a chaos warlord named 'Cryth the Hellbringer', who found out about a relic which is why alot of the warbands are there. My question is, what is the relic/ what do you represent it as?

In the same book, you have the "Kabal of the Obsidian Gauntlet" under the Dark Eldar section. This is described as "...a relic of arcane technology borne by their Archon, which has enabled many of these seemingly-suicidal raids to succeed, as he tears down ferrocrete bastions with its blackened grip."

 

So really, it is up to you. In the Hellbringer's case, what would be appropriate for the leader of a chaos warband? What sort of item would cause many of them to flock to one location? Obviously something of great importance, perhaps a weapon. Create some stats, or make it a rebranded power/force sword or something. 

 

As for the Obsidian Gauntlet, I used just gave the gauntlet itself the stats of a power fist with some narrative wishy-washy stuff as extra abilities. 

 

I've found the Enemies of the Imperium to not only be a good source of foes to fight, but an even better source of flavor, plot hooks, and locations to fight in. Much of it is only listed in name, which gives you the opportunity to fill in the details yourself.

Thank you. I'm thinking of a dark, alternate version of the Puritans wrath chainaxe from Shield of Humanity.
